High Voltage Fuse Technology

For the protection of equipment operating above 1000 volts AC


Current Limiting
Current limiting HV fuse links split into three
internationally recognised types: back-up (or partial
range) fuse links, which will interrupt any current
from their rated breaking capacity down to a minimum
breaking current specified by the manufacturer; and
general purpose fuse links, which will interrupt all
currents from rated breaking capacity down to a
current that will melt the elements within one hour.
A third type is the full range fuse. This term applies
to fuse links that can interrupt any current below
the rated breaking capacity that melts the fuse
elements satisfactorily.

Current limiting back-up fuse links are the closest in


construction to LV cartridge types. However, a longer strip
element with many more restrictions is necessary to
produce the large number of series arcs needed to
interrupt a high voltage. Fuse manufacturers achieve
this by coiling the element around a ceramic core with a
star shaped cross section. In this way, a 1m long element
can be fitted into a 250mm long fuse body. If the adjacent
coils are too close, there will be a flashover between
them and this sets a practical limit on how long an
element can be crammed into a particular cartridge, and
how many elements can be used in parallel.

Like an LV cartridge fuse link, an HV fuse link of this


type has a ceramic body.
Many HV current limiting fuse links are also fitted with
a striker mechanism. This not only provides the user
with a visual indication that the fuse link has operated,
but can also be used to operate other switchgear. In
this way, a fuse on a single phase system can cut off all
three phases if a fault occurs.
Striker mechanisms are driven by explosive charges or
compressed springs. Both are triggered by a thin fuse
wire running the length of the fuse, usually through the
centre of the star shaped core. The wire is connected

Expelled striker

in parallel with the elements, so a current flows


through it when the elements melt. The current
heats up the wire and detonates the explosive
charge, or melts the wire andreleases the spring,
pushing the striker pin out of the fuse links end
cap. A lock washer mechanism makes it impossible
to push the pin back into the fuse body.
There are several variations on this design for specific
applications. For example, the elements in threephase motor protection fuse links are corrugated to
withstand the cyclical mechanical stresses induced
by the high starting and stopping currents drawn
by the motor.

High Voltage Fuse Technology


For the protection of equipment operating above 1000 volts AC
Non- Current Limiting
Essentially, non-current limiting fuse links have short
elements and incorporate some means of lengthening
the arc after the element melts, extinguishing the arc
and preventing re-ignition. There are two distinct types:
expulsion fuse links and liquid fuse links.
Expulsion fuses are an effective way of protecting
overhead distribution lines and transformers. They are
designed for outdoor use only and comprise a tin or
copper fuse element in series with a flexible braid in a
tube. The tube forms one side of a triangle, with a
latched connection at the top and a hinge at the
bottom. The braid emerges from one end of the fuse
link and is held in tension by a spring.
When the element melts, the braid is no longer under
tension, the latch is released and the fuse swings

downwards under gravity, breaking the circuit. As the


fuse swings downwards, the arc is lengthened,
extinguished and prevented from restriking.
Liquid fuse links are based on early non-current
limiting fuse links which use liquids to quench the arc.
The fuse element is anchored to the top ferrule of a
glass tube filled with a quenching liquid - usually a
hydrocarbon. The rest of the tube is filled with a
spring that holds the element - or a strain wire in very
high voltage fuse links - in tension.
When the element melts, the spring pulls the two
parts of the element apart, extending the arc and
quenching it in the liquid.

M- effect

Bussmann high voltage fuse links include M-effect as a design feature to enhance performance. M-effect
(named after its discoverer, Prof. Metcalf, in the late 1930s) consists of applying overlay spots of special low
melting alloy onto the fuse element strips. Its effect is to ensure that the fuse link runs cooler in service and
that the maximum temperature reached during fuse operation is kept down to a modest 160 deg. C
(compared with 300 - 400 deg C for fuse links which do not employ this feature).
M-effect has been in widespread use in both low voltage and high voltage fuse links of British design for
many years and is now coming into use in many other countries. Cooler running M-effect fuse links have
longer service life since lower surface temperature on the elements ensures against long term embrittlement
of the material. The M-effect spots are stable and have been proved by many tests to remain inert for
periods of 30 years or more.
The low maximum operating temperature of M-effect fuse links ensures safe operation of Back-up types in
striker tripped switchgear under low fault conditions. Whereas non M-effect types are known to have a risk
of body fracture because of their much higher body temperature under such conditions. The low maximum
operating temperature also ensures against damage to heat sensitive fuse enclosures such as cast resin
fuse pods.
In short, M-effect fuse links are safer, give better protection and are longer lasting than alternative designs
which do not employ this valuable feature.

DIN - Fuse Links

Fuse Links comply with DIN dimensional


standard DIN43625.
F range, high performance full range fuse link.
S range, high performance back-up fuse
link, with striker tripping.
A range, including high current rating
back-up fuse link.
Comply with IEC 60282-1 and VDE 0670 part 4.
Wide variety of ratings, 3.6 kV to 36 kV.
Versions suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Motor circuit fuse link option.

Bussmann DIN S Fuse Links


The time current characteristics of the S range is optimised to ensure improved discrimination with upstream devices
and to give fast clearance of earth faults in the secondary terminal zones. The breaking performance with low over
currents is adequate to cater for all normal distribution applications, where low voltage fuse links on the secondary side
take care of low overload faults, leaving the high voltage fuse links to clear major faults ahead of LV protection. The fuse
links are suitable for use even where there is no secondary LV protection, provided that they are used in fuse switches
fitted with instantaneous striker tripping.

Bussmann DIN F Fuse Links


The F range fuse links have full range clearing capability. Bussmann F types are designed to clear all overloads right
down to fuses rated current in accordance with latest IEC 282-1 requirements. They are thus suitable for use as a sole
form of protection. F range time current characteristics are especially advantageous for transformer protection
applications.

Bussmann DIN A Fuse Links


This earlier, well proven design, has values of minimum breaking current between the S and F range including higher
current ratings.

Notes

a)

17.5kV fuse links in 10/12 dimensions are offered, since some


switchgear in the 10/12 series is suitable for use at higher voltages.

b)

Fuse links listed are normally for indoor use but versions suitable
for outdoor use are olso available in the same ratings and
dimensions. For outdoor versions of the S range, replace the S
with a T when ordering - for example TDLSJ

c)

* All the fuse link code references listed in the proceeding tables
are for striker fitted versions, for non-striker versions please
replace the letter S with the letter N in the code - for example
SDLNJ. For further information on our parts referencing system,
please refer to section 10 of this catalogue.

Tranformer
Rating

30

Selection of these HV fuse links has been based on the following:


1.

The fuse link should withstand transformer magnetising inrush


currents, taken as 12 times full load current for 0.1 seconds.

2.

The fuse link should discriminate with the rating of secondary


fuse link stated or where only individual cable exit protection
exists, the highest rating likely to be used.

3.

The fuse link should operate within 2 seconds for transformers


complying with IEC60076 - 5 in respect of impedance, voltage
and short circuit withstand current.

4.

The fuse link should operate reasonably quickly in the event of a


transformer internal fault, or an earth fault in the secondary
terminal zone of the transformer.

5.

In the case where there is no secondary fuse link for overload


protection, the minimum recommended HV fuse link rating
applies to the use of fuse links in encapsulated enclosures where
permissible continuous overload is generally limited to 20% of
transformer full load current. However if greater overload currents
are permissible a higher rating of fuse link may be required.
Where the fuse link is used in open air or conditions of unrestricted
ventilation a higher permissible overload may be possible.

6.

In most cases more than one rating of HV fuse link is recommended


for a particular transformer size. Choice of fuse link will then
depend on which fuse offers the best protection e.g. having one fuse
for several transformer sizes.
Recommendations for other voltages are available on request.

Selection of these HV fuse links has been based on the following:


1.

The fuse link should withstand transformer magnetising inrush


currents, taken as 12 times full load current for 0.1 seconds.

2.

The fuse link should discriminate with the rating of secondary


fuse link stated or where only individual cable exit protection
exists, the highest rating likely to be used.

3.

The fuse link should operate within 2 seconds for transformers


complying with IEC60076 - 5 in respect of impedance, voltage
and short circuit withstand current.

4.

15

The fuse link should operate reasonably quickly in the event of a


transformer internal fault, or an earth fault in the secondary
terminal zone of the transformer.

5.

In the case where there is no secondary fuse link for overload


protection, the minimum recommended HV fuse link rating
applies to the use of fuse links in encapsulated enclosures where
permissible continuous overload is generally limited to 20% of
transformer full load current. However if greater overload currents
are permissible a higher rating of fuse link may be required.
Where the fuse link is used in open air or conditions of unrestricted
ventilation a higher permissible overload may be possible.

6.

In most cases more than one rating of HV fuse link is recommended


for a particular transformer size. Choice of fuse link will then
depend on which fuse offers the best protection e.g. having one fuse
for several transformer sizes.
Recommendations for other voltages are available on request.

Bussmann Motor Fuse Links


The Bussmann range of motor fuse links are designed to meet the specific requirements necessary for motor
protection. During the starting cycle of direct on-line motors, the fuse elements will reach a considerably higher
temperature than during normal operation; (this is due to the the high amount of current the motor will draw as it starts,
typically, 6 times its normal load current value). This results in expansion and contraction of the fuse elements and
could cause premature operation of the fuse.
Bussmann motor fuse links encompass an advanced design to minimise this effect. This therefore, negates the need
to over specify the fuse rating due to high values of of motor starting current.
Bussmann motor fuse links operate extremely quickly under heavy fault currents, resulting from the time / current
characteristic. Low power dissipation ensures low temperature rise, important in multi-tier starters for example.
Switching (Arc), voltages are lower than permitted values, therefore, 5.5kV fuses are also suitable for 4.8kV and 2.4kV circuits.

Motor Fuse Links

Application
Fuse Links provide short circuit protection in motor circuits to both the motor starter and cables from the starter to the motor.
Overload protection is provided by the motor starter, generally by an overload relay and contactor. Combination striker tripping
may also form part of associated equipment which houses the fuse links and motor starters.

Application Procedure
For any motor the fuse current rating is determined by magnitude and duration of starting current, except in a few situations
where the starting currents are very light. The fuse current rating should therefore be selected as follows:

Direct-on-line Starting
In the absence of specific information the starting current can usually be taken to be six times the motors full load current.
The starting time will depend on the type of the drive but will be approximately as follows:
Pump Motors - 6 seconds
Mill Motors - 10 to 15 seconds
Fan Motors - 60 seconds
These are average values and the appropriate figures for starting current and starting time for actual installation should be obtained
wherever possible.
Multiply the starting current by 1.7 and using this value of current and the starting time, (it is recommended that a minimum
time of 5 seconds be adopted), plot this point on the time-current characteristics of the fuse link. The correct current rating
of the fuse is then chosen as being the one immediately to the right of the point so plotted. The chosen fuse must also have
a current rating of at least 1.3 times the full-load current of the associated motor.
The rating chosen will be adequate for normal applications where the associated motor is not started more than twice in given
period of one hour.
For applications using more frequent starting duties, a greater derating factor must be applied as shown in the following table.

Maximum 2 starts per hour - Derating factor 1.7

Maximum 8 starts per hour - Derating factor 2.1

Maximum 4 starts per hour - Derating factor 1.9

Maximum 16 starts per hour - Derating factor 2.4

Assisted Starting
A similar method of fuse selection may be used as for direct-on-line starting (see above), but it must be noted that the
normal running current of the motor is likely to be closer in value to the nominal current rating of the fuse than for direct-online applications.
The rating of fuse chosen will need to be appreciably greater than the motor running current to allow for restricted cooling inside
control gear cubicles, particularly where multi-tier starters are involved. In case of doubt refer to Bussmann for further guidance.

Note
For applications involving more frequent starting duties than 16 times per hour or where unusual duty cycles are involved,
consult Bussmann application engineers for advice.

Voltage and Auxiliary Transformer Fuse Links

British Standard VT Fuse Links.


A range of voltage transformer primary
Fuse Links to BS2692-1 and IEC60282-1.
Wide range of ratings from 1 kV to 36 kV.
3.15 Amp industry standard current ratings.
CAV range with ratings from 3.6kV to 38kV.

Bussmann Voltage and Auxiliary Transformer Fuse Links


Bussmann manufacture a wide range of voltage transformer (VT) fuse links. In North America they are referred to as
Potential Transformer fuses. These fuse links are designed for use in the primary side of voltage transformers to
provide system isolation in the event of faults occurring in the transformer circuit.
Voltage transformer fuse links, have a preferred current rating of 3.15A. Experience has shown that there is a risk of
spurious operation by transient overcurrents where lower current ratings are used. In addition, in order to minimise the
risk of deterioration of the fine fuse elements caused by corona, it is desirable to mount the fuse links so that the
earthed metal is not in the immediate vicinity of the part of the barrel between the ferrules.
Higher current and E ratings are available for special applications, including auxiliary transformers.
A range of VT fuse links with a breaking capacity of 200kA for use at the output terminals of large turbo alternators
can also be ordered. For further information, please contact Bussmann application engineers.
Types prefixed A or N are suitable for use in Air only. Types prefixed O may be used under oil.
For DIN dimensioned voltage transformer and auxiliary transformer fuse links, please refer to DIN dimensioned
fuse link section.

Current Limiting Fuse Links for use in Oil Switchgear

Fuse Links comply with IEC 282-1, BS2692-1


and ESI Standard 12-8.
7.2 and 12kV Fuse Links tested at highest
system voltage and approved by the UK
Electricity Association approvals panel.
Voltage ranges 3.6 to 24kV.
Fitted with powerful pyrotechnic striker pin.

Bussmann under oil Fuse Links


The Bussmann range of oil tight fuse links are designed for use in oil filled switchgear. This type was pioneered in
the U.K. and the Bussmann range has been in continuous manufacture for almost 40 years, being by far the most
widely used device of its kind in the world. Over 1,000,000 Bussmann branded fuse links have been put into service
without a single reported case of oil ingress. A unique triple seal system ensures against long term seal
deterioration. Low power dissipation ensures cool running in oil filled switchgear.
The range is not suitable for use inside oil filled transformer tanks where high oil temperatures may be expected.

Selection of these fuse links has been based on a compromise between the following:
1

Withstand against magnetising inrush current is taken as 12 times full-load current for 0.1 second.

Withstand against 150% permissible overload current. Recommendations marked with an asterisk or dagger have
the following significance:
* Limited to permissible overload of 130%
Permits use of a 12kV OHFMA 80A fuse with a 1000 kVA transformer where permissible overload does not
exceed 130%.

For 6.6kV systems, 12kV fuse links are recommended where possible in the interests of standardisation.

Wherever possible, 254mm long fuse links are offered rather than equivalent 359mm types.

The above recommendations are not generally applicable to transformers feeding motor circuits with starting
currents in excess of the transformer full load current. In this event, please consult Bussmann application engineers.

Selection of these fuse links has been based on a compromise between the following:
1 The fuse links should withstand transformer magnetising inrush currents, taken as 12 times full load current for 0.1 seconds.
2 The fuse links should discriminate with the highest rating of secondary fuse link.
3 The fuse links should withstand periodic over-currents of up to 150% of transformer full load current.
4 The fuse links should operate reasonably quickly in the event of a transformer inter-turn fault or a fault in the
secondary terminal zone of the transformer.
Notes
a) The above recommendations are not generally applicable to transformers feeding motor circuits with starting
currents in excess of the rated current of the fuse. In this event, please consult Bussmann.
b) For 6.6kV transformers, 12kV Fuse Links are recommended, where the required current rating is available.
c) Where the transformer is not subjected to periodic over-currents, a lower fuse rating may be suitable, fuse
ratings marked thus 3 are only suitable for use with the transformer sizes quoted, where significant over
loading does not occur.

Fuse links for use in transformers with primary voltages of 3.3kV, 22kV and 33kV are available, please consult
Bussmann application engineers for further details and a recommendation.

Bussmann Liquid Fuse Links


Bussmann manufacture a range of liquid filled fuse links for use outdoors, on pole mounted equipment. They
provide a simple yet effective means of protection in distribution applications. However, it should be noted that
liquid filled fuse links were first put into service before HV fuse standards were introduced and are therefore not
covered by any present standard. They are principally for replacement purposes on existing systems.
General Description
The fuse body is of clear toughened glass to allow visual identification of a blown fuse element. Plated contact
ferrules are hermetically sealed onto each end of the tube. The replacement fuse element assembly is held under
tension within the tube, which is filled with fuse arc quenching liquid. (A data sheet on this product is available,
please contact Bussmann for details.) The upper end of the fuse link is sealed by a tin diaphragm. This is designed
to rupture during operation, permitting venting of arc products.
The fuse link is sealed against the weather and has an indefinite service life, under normal conditions. The element
assembly is enclosed by a fibre sleeve. This assists in the process of arc extinguishing during operation.
Operation
When a fuse link operates under fault conditions, the element and connecting strain wire melt, the tension spring
then pulls the lower contact and element assembly through the arc quenching liquid to the bottom of the fuse link
assembly. A specially shaped liquid director cone, fitted on the assembly, creates a turbulence in the liquid to
ensure rapid dispersal of arc products.
Replacement of the Fuse Element
Element replacement kits, complete with instructions, are available from Bussmann. We also advise that a minimum
of one replacement kit be purchased with each order.
Note that Size 1 fuse links do not have replaceable elements.
